Statement of Educational Effectiveness
Because the Division for Priestly Formation of Saint John Vianney admits only students sponsored for priestly formation by a diocese or religious institute, its rate of placement immediately after graduation and ordination is nearly 100%. In rare cases, there may be a delay between graduation and ordination to the priesthood. Because continuance in the Seminary’s programs is dependent on this sponsorship as well as the individual student’s ongoing commitment to seek ordination, reasons for departures during formation are handled with discretion. To date, over 200 men have earned the M.Div. degree from the Seminary.
